My sister/ best friend well her other friend who I became friends with just started with testing of abnormal cells that were found and they both got freaked out when first thing the doctor said was cancer. I told her it may be nothing but when they heard a 45% chance of cancer they got freaked out.
I hate how doctors approach this because I was told there was a 0% I had cancer and it was cancer all because the first thing out of his mouth was you dont fit the criteria. I love to see doctors saying the first thing they are testing for is cancer but it freaks people out. I wish there was an easier way like tell people ok we are treating this as cancer because thats the thats on the top of the list for the first thing that has to be proved it not to be before we can test for anything else. I am just frustrated with it I guess cause I watch people like me wait 9 months or longer and the doctors tellin them the whole time its not cancer then it is.... then I see those that the doctors tell them it only can be cancer when there is more of a possibility its something else. I just wish doctors would tell all the posibilities it could be then just say well we need to test for cancer first. I dont know if anyone else had this problem or not but let me know.
